Exciting news for Walking Dead fans who have been crossing their fingers for characters from the comics to show up, because that is exactly what is going to happen. I'll keep the name of said character until after the jump, but what I will say is that there have been two characters on the show from the beginning who had, up until this announcement, seemed like the logical "replacements." But deep down, we all knew there was a missing piece. Follow us inside to find out who is finally joining the survivors!
One last warning about the new/old character...
Good. You've been warned. It's Tyreese! The former NFL player with the frisky daughter (and her boyfriend) who had joined Rick Grimes and Friends very early on in Robert Kirkman's comics will be played by Chad Coleman from The Wire. No word yet on when, exactly, Coleman's first appearance will be or if he'll be accompanied by the rest of his family. The news was first reported by TVOvermind, which also reported the upcoming return ("from a distance") of the character Morgan, played by Lennie James.
This is pretty exciting news, especially now that we know Carol is back and Michonne has found the prison. In the comics, Tyreese started a relationship with Carol, then made a little time for Michonne. Carol did not take it well, but in the comics, Carol also proposed a three-way marriage with Lori and Rick. That, clearly, will not be happening, unless it happens with Michonne and Tyreese, or Michonne and Daryl, or Daryl and Tyreese... but enough speculating about the hot, hot polygamy action. Tyreese is about to show up, and he is a pretty kickass guy!
